Summary
When children are guided in healthy ways, their minds blossom and they are able to reach their full potential--academically, socially, physically, and emotionally. In his previous bestseller, Why Do They Act That Way?, Dr. David Walsh, an expert at translating cutting-edge neuroscience findings into practical parenting suggestions, showed how to manage the difficult teenage years by understanding how the adolescent brain develops. Now he's written a complete guide to parenting from birth through the teen years, with recommendations that will help maximize any child's potential. Some discoveries in neuroscience confirm age-old parental wisdom, while others may prompt you to make immediate changes; still other brain discoveries help explain behaviors that have puzzled parents forever. This book doesn't just describe new findings or explain interesting facts--it equips parents with usable information across a range of topics, like exercise, nutrition, play, sleep, stress, self-discipline, emotional intelligence, and connection.--From publisher description
